Greektown Contract Good for Four Years

Casino workers voted by a 3-to-1 margin to ratify a new, four-year agreement with Greektown Casino in Detroit, Mich. tonight.  The valet, front desk, phone operators, warehouse, grounds and general workers are represented by Teamsters Local 372 in Detroit, a member of the Detroit Casino Council.

"I'm extremely happy with the supportive vote today for all the hard work that this bargaining committee went through to get the best possible contract for our membership," said Tavara McCree, an 11-year employee of the Greektown Casino and member of the Local 372 bargaining committee. "The vote proves that the process works."

"I'm proud of our bargaining team and the Teamsters working at Greektown Casino who gave us the leverage we needed to bargain a fair and equitable contract in very difficult economic times," said Veronica Sawyer, Teamsters International Representative and chief spokesperson for the Local 372 bargaining committee. "Our members turned out in huge numbers and voted by a three to one margin to support this bargaining team. Tonight's vote count is a victory for casino workers at Greektown."

The Detroit Casino Council represents nearly 6,000 union members at three casinos in Detroit. Still to vote are workers at MotorCity and MGM Grand Detroit casinos.
